A. Children must be aged between 4 and 17 and suffering from a life-threatening illness. The wish must be the child’s own, and will be granted whilst the child is well enough to enjoy it. The trustees have also set out financial and geographic parameters. These take into account the nature of the wish and the number of people involved in it.
A. We include members of their immediate family, including brothers and sisters under the age of 18 and who live at the same address.
A. We cannot arrange for additional people to take part in a wish. However, where a wish involves a holiday, we can provide all the details so that other members can make their own arrangements at their own expense.
A. Each wish is individually sanctioned by the trustees. However, the Wish Coordinator has been delegated the power to decide, provided the wish meets certain criteria.
A. Sometimes there is a delay between agreeing to grant a wish, and the wish actually happening. This is often because we are waiting for the child’s condition to stabilise enough for the child to take part in the wish. Sometimes it is due to the availability of a personality that the child has wished to meet. If we have promised to grant a wish, this promise does not “expire” on the 18th birthday.
A. A board of Trustees, made up of past and present members of the Round Table Family, Community/Corporate supporters and wish parents.
We are purely a wish-granting charity and unable to provide funding for specialist medical equipment or home adaptations
